Tour de Romandie - Race Overview

British climber Simon Yates has put in a strong final time trial at the Tour de Romandie today, lifting himself to sixth position overall at the end of the six-day race.

Yates’ overall result caps off a successful week for ORICA-GreenEDGE after Michael Albasini added two stage wins to the three he won in 2014 and wore the yellow leader’s jersey for three days.

“Very much so,” Stephens said when asked if the team achieved the goals they brought into the race. “0.63seconds from winning a team time trial against one of the strongest teams Sky can put together and two road stages from Michael Albasini.

“And a top ten at the Tour de Romandie when you look at some of the riders there, that’s fantastic.  I had thought maybe it was a little too hard for here so sixth is unbelievable.
